Oh good grief! We currently have 10 chickens, 1 rooster, and 1 turkey. And we currently get exactly ONE egg a day. No need to go back, you read that correctly. 1 Uno O-N-E

In less than a week, Pitter-Paterson Academy will officially begin it’s 2016-2017 school year. It’s not that we’ve really taken that much time off… or rather, it’s not that we’ve really done much different from our regular school year. We still take opportunities to learn throughout the day whether that is through reading together, or discussing something that interests us,… Read More
Our Kinder Co-op officially ended in May. My ingenious friend Jill planned this fun end-of-the-year Kinder Co-op Summer Olympics complete with gold medals. Some of the moms (including myself) thought that maybe continuing to meet unofficially would be good for the kiddos. And us. When my week came up I decided to do a mystery, treasure hunt for the… Read More
Confession: I don’t love playing with my kids. I mean, I enjoy watching them play together. And for snippets of time I can thoroughly enjoy a good tickle fight or wrestling match; I can use a stuffed animal to kiss on a little face; I can make a little something with Play-Doh. But my stamina in the “Mommy, play with… Read More

Last month my friend Tina invited me and some close friends to join a Kid’s Honor Club. Ok, well, she invited our kids. It’s a sweet little 12 week program Tina picked up that teaches the kids what it means to be honorable people.
Have you heard of CozyPhones? I hadn’t either until a few weeks ago when my family received a headband to try out. CozyPhones are these adorable fleece headbands with ear phones sewn in. The family tried the headphones and wanted to share our thoughts.
Seriously, our luck with getting hens is like… well, bad. It’s bad luck. We added 8 birds to our flock this year and to date at least one is a rooster, but quite possibly 1 more.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to an online Norwex party by my friend Tina. I had heard of Norwex before, but just in passing. This was my first time actually looking at the products. Up to this point, I haven’t exactly embraced the idea of “clean living” with open arms. It’s not that I’m fighting it. It’s… Read More
